Mitra the robot helps Covid patients in India speak to loved ones

IndiaTimes Wednesday, 16 September 2020 ()
A hospital in India has deployed a customer-service robot to patrol its wards, connecting coronavirus patients to friends and relatives. Its piercing eyes are equipped with facial recognition technology to help it recall people it has previously interacted with. A tablet attached to Mitra's chest allows patients to see loved ones and medical staff unable to access the wards.
